Why do Dr. Wilkinson, and our team at Wilkinson Orthodontics work tirelessly to give our patients straight teeth. Of course it’s nice to have a smile full of evenly-aligned teeth, but did you know that straightening your teeth can keep them healthier as well?

Straight teeth lead to better oral hygiene, increasing your chances of keeping your own natural teeth for a lifetime!

Straight teeth are less prone to decay, because they collect less plaque, that sticky colourless substance that forms on our teeth. When you visit Wilkinson Orthodontics for your initial consultation, Dr. Wilkinson will examine all aspects of your teeth, face, smile, andprofile.

If you’re wondering whether your teeth might cause problems because they are out of alignment, please give us a call to set up an initial orthodontic consultation at our convenient Helensvale or Benowa office. Dr. Wilkinson can help you decide whether or not you will benefit from orthodontic treatment.
